Valiant Stand-off

For Angie at Purling Oaks. We have a mild, rain forest climate, but our roses are feeling the light frost, too. You can see the beginnings of the fall colours. We tend to have more golden than red leaves and sometimes they are lost to the rains.
Progress continuing on the knitted lace edging. I am knitting in all sorts of places: mechanic, orthodontist, middle school cafeteria, music academy. Anywhere that I can still manage the pattern.
My flute instructor gave us a wonderful concert on Saturday night, accompanying (on piano) her sister, Carla Trynchuk, a world class violinist. Thanks for the inspiration!
Sunday was chock-a-block full with a baby shower squeezed in. Our babysitter grew up and has started her own family with a lovely little seven pound baby girl. They appreciated the EZ baby surprise surplice. Such celebrations can really cut in to your knitting time. But I will be brave and sodier on.

I remember one year having a Christmas rose.
